34th Annual IEEE Computer Software and Applications Conference

Main Conference

COMPSAC 2011: The Computed World: Software Beyond  the Digital Society

Creating the digital society and beyond needs all aspects of computing, software development, and software systems engineering. The computed world embraces not only the Information Technology world, but also the physical world. COMPSAC, the IEEE Signature Conference on Computer Software and Applications, is a unique forum to bring together all facets of computed world and their major stakeholders. Building on computationally smart environments, and trustworthy, secure, and dependable distributed software—themes of highly successful recent COMPSAC conferences—the technical theme for the 35th conference is The Computed World: Software Beyond the Digital Society.

To properly engineer such domains, the foundations, methodologies, and mechanisms that support the design, modeling, and evaluation of software systems and computer applications must come from diverse sources. Topics of interest include but are not limited to requirement analysis, co-analysis/co-design, modeling, development, testing, measurement, verification, validation, performance, autonomy, safety, security, privacy and dependability constraints. Effective construction of these systems is not limited solely to the field of computer science and engineering and comes as a synergetic effort, between various domains of research. Multidisciplinary work, research and development of software prototypes, industry-university collaborations, all based on new emerging and critical technologies will be of particular interest to this conference.

All accepted papers will be published in the electronic proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society, indexed through INSPEC and EI Index and automatically included in the IEEE digital library.

Acceptance Rate for 2011:

Total Submissions Accepted Full Accepted Short Overall
199 41 (20%) 44(22%) 42%

Submission

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers as well as industrial practice papers. Simultaneous submissions to otherpublication venues are not permitted. Detailed instructions for electronic paper submission, panel and workshop proposals, fast abstracts, doctoral symposium and review process can be found at http://www.compsac.org/. The length of the camera-ready accepted papers will be limited to 10 (IEEE Proceedings style) pages, and printed with 10-12 point fonts.

Please follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare your papers.

Note: Main conference paper submissions should not contain author identification in order to ensure the double blind review process.  Main conference abstracts may be revised before final manuscript submission.




At least one author of each accepted paper (regular, short, workshop) or fast abstract is required to pay full registration fee to the conference. Each accepted paper must be presented in person by the author or one of the authors. At least one Best Paper Award and 1-3 Best Student Paper Awards will be presented by COMPSAC 2011. Arrangements are being made to publish sets of the best technical contributions to reputable journals. The first author of the best student papers must be a full-time student. Doctoral Symposium papers are encouraged with reduced student registration rate.

Upload regular papers and fast abstracts in PDF, Postscript, or RTF format through the submission link.

Notice about submission deadline and time zones -
authors may submit their full manuscripts by midnight of their own time zone on (Submission Deadline). The cutoff date and time will take place at 12 midnight on the final time zone of the world clock.
